Re: The New Album Info Thread

Everyone seems to be after Behaviour 2, but I am hopeful this will be like Actually in its balance of dance, pop and melancholy. What I've heard so far is promising.

Re: Burning the heather

Gotta say, after a few plays this bugger's a real grower. Much prefer it to Dreamland. Bet you've all had the "you've got me all wrong" refrain stuck in your heads now. Find myself getting the urge to keep going back and listening to it. I think in a few months we'll be looking back at this track ve...

Re: What's the lead single of "Electric"?

I'd say "Inner sanctum" was a promo track that got upgraded to proper (limited) single later, with "The Pop Kids" being the true first single. "Axis" was a proper lead single from "Electric". I agree. Axis was released as a separate download single with its own artwork prior to Electric. Inner Sanc...

Re: Burning the heather

'Burning The Heather' reminds me of 'The Next Day' late Davie Bowie era tracks - knowingly reflective and honest. I could imagine Bowie singing this from the moment I heard it.

Re: The lost single

Think New Order and Blue Monday, it's probably been rereleased 10 times by now. Blue Monday, Blue Monday '88, Blue Monday '95, Blue Monday 2004 … I understand that they have to play it live, but why should they release it over and over again? It reminds me of the Cantina Band from Star Wars: Play t...

Re: The lost single

The Way It Used To Be...how this was ignored as a single is beyond me, absolutely stunning track !!! Agreed, probably my favourite track on the album. I actually prefer the Richard X Remix to the album version, which would've made the perfect 12" mix to accompany an edited version of the album mix ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

Interesting that the arrangements of Heart, Suburbia and WHIDTDS we reused from the Pandemonium tour from ten years ago. Guess it was a straightforward way to quickly add a few more early hits into the set.

Re: 2 albums?

Just my opinion. In January we're having the new album but the tour is called "Greatest hits live", so I thought that... november: 2nd single january, just before the album (or together with it): 3rd single end of april / beginning of may: new single to be included in a Greatest Hits beginning / ha...

Re: 2 albums?

What’s the best GH album of the boys currently published? Discography is slicker but PopArt is better. Except for having the wrong versions of Heart and I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing on it. Best version of PopArt is the US edition as it contains the correct single versions of Heart, I w...

Re: 2 albums?

I think there will be another greatest hits compilation released in time for Xmas 2020 which will include a DVD or Blu-ray featuring one of the live performances recorded in the summer tour. Given it'll be the fourth singles collection, it'd be great if it has a twist - maybe new versions or studio ...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

I love so many tracks by PSB, and am always an optimistic poster on these forums, but... I'm putting it out there... Please, for the love of God, ditch 'New York City Boy'. Always bored me to tears and can't understand why it's been in so many of their live sets over the years.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

I'm not sure anyone has said this previously, but I reckon after Dreamland there'll be 1 more single in November/December, then album, 2 more singles in 2020 followed by a complete greatest hits package (no doubt called Dreamworld) in time for Christmas 2020. Which will no doubt include a DVD/Blu-r...

How many Elysium songs did they include on the Electric tour? Or any of their shows since?
